Safe tourism in the time of Covid: recommendations for travel in Europe
What to do? travel or not? is it better to stay at home? When the coronavirus appeared it seemed a distant subject, but day by day we realize that we have to live with this virus and go on with our lives, with a lot of conscience, responsibility and information.
The trips and their planning were completely affected, which began to make the organization of vacations difficult, also taking into account the closing of some cities, or some of their monuments.
But should we just sit back and do nothing?
No! This situation that we live at world-wide level does not prevent that, taking all the necessary precautions, we can plan incredible days within the European cities.
Much is said about Europe and its problems with Covid 19, discouraging many travelers. But little is said about the superhuman efforts that each place, from the small bar to the most important museums, make to guarantee the health of tourists and their own employees.
Lisbon: considered one of the most charming cities in Europe, it has a wide variety of places to visit, including the picturesque neighborhoods of Alfama and Mouraria, where life in Lisbon is completely normal. The old neighborhood of Belem, in the outskirts, is a very good option to get out of the city.
Don't miss its exquisite gastronomy: seafood and preserves are a classic in Portuguese cuisine.
Rome: How can we not visit the most emblematic city in Europe? Don't miss the imposing Colosseum, currently open to the public, where security measures are implemented to the letter and with limited capacity. The same goes for the Vatican, your visit is very safe and with strict prevention measures.
Remember to eat a good pasta in a 'Trattoria', or visit vineyards in beautiful Roman villages.
Paris: Undoubtedly the best time to visit 'the city of lights'. Accustomed to being the most visited city in the world, in these times, with less tourism, it is practically for you and your family. Thanks to the 'no queue' tickets, you can enjoy the Eiffel Tower, or the Louvre museum, avoiding crowds.
If you want to leave the city, a route through the vineyards of Reims to taste French Champagne, is a very good plan.
Copenhagen: is one of the most recommended cities, not only for its beauty, but for its incredible natural environment, ideal to feel free in times of Covid. Discover the Nordic gastronomy, while you travel through the hidden treasures that the city hides. A bike ride is a must.
Take advantage and escape to Malmo, the beautiful Swedish city that is only 1 hour away from Copenhagen.
London: this beautiful city offers all the safety measures to make you feel comfortable traveling. Visit without risk the Tower of London or the famous Westminster Abbey thanks to the 'no queue' tickets. Don't forget to take pictures of Big Ben.
Sit down in his pubs, and taste his delicious beers. Seats are completely controlled. Overwhelmed by the city? Escape to Oxford and visit its wonderful Colleges.
Travelling fills your soul with joy, you just have to be responsible and encourage yourself to do it!!!!
